The professional staff at Emma L. Bowen Center is trained in providing treatment and assistance to elderly members of our communities in need, many of whom are facing multiple challenges. Over one-third of patients who come to the Emma L. Bowen Community Services Center are aged 60 and older and are dually diagnosed with substance abuse and co-existing mental health issues such as depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and schizophrenia. Most of our older patients are grappling with severe mental health issues, especially acute depression. Many of these patients are also struggling to manage severe physical illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, decreased bone mineral density and osteoporosis, and 10% require a wheelchair, walker and/or oxygen. More than half of our older patients are isolated or have limited supportive family and community relationships. An estimated one-third are facing acute economic hardship and live in substandard conditions. Many elders who have mental and physical issues are also caring for grandchildren.
Treatment services are offered Monday thru Friday from 9:00am to 8:00pm and on Saturdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
